This is a photo passed to us by Frances Townsend. She says it shows her Grandmother, Lillian Walker, outside Walkers Stores at the top of Denham Road.
John and Lillian moved to Canvey in 1926/7 for a healthier life for my mum who had been in Great Ormond Street Hospital with a lung infection. The shop was at the top of Denham Road opposite Jones Stores. My mum helped in the shop in the mid to late 1930’s until she was called up to the WAAF’s in WW2.
